Wednesday Volunteers

Wednesday, November 19th 2014

Volunteers have had a busy morning surveying species on the reserve. Firstly the moths, caught overnight in our light trap were identified. Six species were recorded this morning including the December Moth and Mottled Umber. Once this was finished the group split, half looking for fungi and the other half looking for birds.

Several species of fungi were seen including Green Elf Cup, Snapping Bonnet and a new species for the reserve, an Earththongue – the exact species is still to be determined! The birders also came back for lunch with an exciting record – a Tree Sparrow, one of only a handful of sightings of these birds on the reserve.

Ruth and Elizabeth were in again working on the touchscreen project, they were measuring and cutting fabric ready to make a cover for when this is not in use. The grand unveiling is on Saturday 6th December at 10am, if you would like to come along to see this fantastic resource please let us know.

As always thank you all for you work today and for making the reserve such a friendly place to be!
